This is far more detail than anybody in their right mind could
possibly care about, and while I'm sure there's relevant info
buried in there somewhere, I'm not about to go digging for it.

Re: xeon server [In reply to]

(apologies if this is delivered twice)

Geisel,

It's unlikely that someone would take the time to analyze your new computer
system and make blind suggestions. You'd have better luck asking a specific
question, preferably after doing some research of your own. See
http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html


Secondly, extracting some header information from your message:

X-Filtering-Reason: No text/plain message body was present.
X-Filtering-Reason: The message contained data that was of an illegal content
type.
X-Karma: -2


and after briefly scanning your message (in unrendered markup form), here are
a few suggestions:

- Send your mail in plain text format. Many of the Gentoo developers and users
on this mailing list can read HTML text without having it rendered, but
they're more likely to simply send your message on an instantaneous trip to
the trash; many mail filters will do this automatically (mine included).

- Don't waste message space by sending virtual business cards (the "illegal
content type" mentioned in the second filtering header). If you need to
provide information about yourself, add a web address to your signature; save
us the trouble of looking at data that's of no interest. If someone wants
more information, they'll search the web or visit the website that you've
listed in your signature.

- Be concise. Basic information about the computer is useful. A raw dump of
data, spanning your entire device subsystem, is not. This is also, from a
security standpoint, potentially unwise.

Re: xeon server [In reply to]

Sorry.

This is better:

I'm installing gentoo - kernel 2.6.x in a server with the specifications
above. This will be an apache + php 5.0 + mysql 4.1 server. The server
will be instaled on an internal network.

2 x Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.66GHz
2GB RAM
2 HD SCSI 36GB RAID 1
1 HD IDE 80 GB

Its a powerful machine, no doubt. but..
Are you planning any form of CMS on the server? PHP5 & MySQL 4.1 might
not be the best choice for that.
Whats the 80G disk for?
Seems like an overkill for internal network.

Re: xeon server [In reply to]

It's an ERP server with 150 simultaneous users .

80G disk will be used for logs and system recovery only.

As a side note, I do such things (Linux capacity planning) for a living
and am rather unlikely to deliver major quantities of valuable advice
for free. Perhaps there is someone in the original poster's part of the
world who would, though.

Hi Chris!

The server:
  • Hardware SCSI RAID 1
  • no LVM2
  • no SATA
  • The motherboard:
product: SE7501BR2
vendor: Intel
version: A95686-506

The backup will be stored in data tapes.
